Mission

The Arts Network believes artistic expression is a basic and necessary function of healthy and productive individuals, and that the health and productivity of a society is reflective of the degree of artistic expression among its citizens. Therefore it is the commitment of this Network to initiate, develop, and implement strategies and resources that will support interest and abilities in the visual and performing arts. Specifically, the Network: 1) promotes the recognition and acceptance of the Visual and Performing Arts as an essential area of giftedness; 2) encourages research in the area of the artistically gifted and talented; 3) provides practical strategies and resources to foster artistic expression; and 4) increases awareness of artistic expression, aesthetic perception, aesthetic valuing, and aesthetic appreciation.

  • Promote the recognition and acceptance of the Arts as an essential area of giftedness;
  • Encourage research in the area of the artistically gifted and talented;
